"In the spirit of 2nd floor projects, an artist-run exhibition and publishing space I founded in 2007 in San Francisco, whose programming includes commissions to writers for limited edition publications (not the usual traditional essay intended to serve the work), I invite you the reader to spend time musing the following texts that hover in proximity — "cut-ups" if you will, in conversation with the visual works selected — a kind of surround sound within this exhibition." - Margaret Tedesco
